Many of you who are regular readers of Marvelous Kiddo already know Riki from her presence here as an avid and engaged commenter who also appears frequently in my posts since she is, well, a grandmother to the marvelous kiddos! However, most of you probably are not aware of Riki's life's work, and so it is today that I have the pleasure of introducing you to one of my newest sponsors, a wonderful person and amazing therapist, who just happens to also be my mother-in-law!
Riki Alexander is a therapist who uses Somatic Experiencing®, Process Work, and Authentic Movement , as well as Alexander Technique to help clients to work through overwhelming experiences that may have gotten stuck in the nervous system.
With over 35 years experience as a body-centered therapist & educator, Riki is the senior Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner in the Washington, DC area. She divides her time & private practices between DC & NYC.
Focusing on trauma recovery, nervous system stabilization, and the restoration of joy and wholeness, Riki is an AmSAT certified senior teacher of the Alexander Technique, an ISMETA Registered Somatic Movement Therapist, and a USABP member (US Association for Body Psychotherapy). She incorporates Arny Mindell's Process Work & Authentic Movement into her practice.
Riki's greatest joy lies in supporting each client's unique personal process, trusting the creative self-regulation of every nervous system to proceed along its own healing path. In addition to private practices in DC & NYC working with individuals and couples, Riki has been a long-time primary assistant on Somatic Experiencing® trainings. She is an FHE-approved provider of required personal sessions and case consultations and supervision for SE students at all levels of training.
If you live in the NYC or DC areas and are seeking to transcend difficult or overwhelming experiences, I encourage you to contact Riki for her expert guidance. As a gift to Marvelous Kiddo readers, Riki is offering a 10% discount on the first session for new clients of her New York practice. Just mention that you read about her here!
